    πŸ“ Hellen Fishing Boat

    Hi All
    This year I bought an unstarted kit, but, sold it to a club member.
    A month later one of the club member wish to swap for a faster boat and as my Sea Commander required a repaint and fittings.
    I thought a swap for a very good working Hellen was a good deal.
    So are making a dingy and replacing the broken prop with a brass one I had my second Hellen for the year.
    Three weeks ago another Hellen pops up on Gumtree(aka EBAY), so it was to cheap not to buy it.
    While waiting for it to come, I made a new stand, a dingy with oars and a set of fenders.
    When it arrive the mast where laying on the deck broken, but , the posted pics show that.
    The motor is a 11 to 1 geared MFA Como 919 D which runs OK.
    A spare new plastic prop.
    Started on the repairs, like the keel and deck around the mast bases.
    The aft mast was broken in half, so I brass sleeved it.
    The aft sail was missing and the forward sail was all glued up, so I bin it.
    So this is the boat pics so far.

    Very similar to the rebuild / conversion job I'm doing on an ancient Billing Boats Gina 2 Danish fish cutter. But yours was better built in the first place πŸ‘
    Good luck, will watch progress with 'vested' interest! Cheers Doug 😎

    Hi All
    Fast track the boat to get it in the water, still has a few bits to do.
    I replaced the geared motor with a rock crawler 55 turn HPI motor, a lot quieter.
    The boat ran well and a good turning circle.
    Trim the end stop on the transmitter to 80% for the next outing.
    Remove a bit of ballast from the stern as it was to low at the stern in the water.
    The side fenders require a bit of lead in them to hold them down.
